Diplo & Skrillex form Jack U duo

Posted by on May 2, 2013

Diplo & Skrillex2 of the three creators of the Potato Will Eat You project, Diplo and Skrillex have decided to join forces and form a duo named Jack U. The name first came up on the lineup for the San Diego Mad Decent Block Party and caused a lot confusion, but Diplo cleared it up on twitter saying “Jack u… Means skrillex+diplo together..”. This is not their first time working together — their collaboration “Amplifire” gained buzz back in the summer of 2011, but nothing has come of it, possibly due to sample clearing issues, a hot button topic these days. They will be releasing music on the Potato Will Eat You Youtube channel and will do the occasional live show. The only show that is currently scheduled is for the San Diego edition of the Mad Decent Block Parties.

It is hard to imagine they will have the time to release that much music together since each of them have their own very busy solo careers, are already members of duos, Skrillex in Dog Blood and Diplo in Major Lazer, and tour 300+ days a year. It will be interesting to see what comes of this, but if their past innovative style is any indication, we should expect some really cool, unique music from Jack U.
